Chiefs' head coach Steve Komphela has been
criticised for his preferred formation, which includes three
centre-backs, protective screen Willard Katsande, and two full-backs.
Nevertheless, Chiefs have done their
talking on the pitch, conceding only 12 league goals this season to date
which is less than any other side after 21 games. Khune, who tops the Absa Premierships' clean sheets leaderboard with 11, insists that the proof is in the
"People always say we play seven at the back. But we don't play
seven, we play with three and we have consolidating players. Most of the
teams are playing the same formation we are playing and it has been
working for us. We just have to keep going," Khune is quoted as saying
"Clean sheets are a good morale
booster for me as an individual and for the whole team, so we just have
to keep pushing to keep more clean sheets."
Chiefs endured a difficult start to
the season, which saw Komphela widely lambasted, but they have recovered
in recent weeks and have not lost in eight Premiership games.
They currently sit second in the
league, five points behind Mamelodi Sundowns, and will face Bloemfontein
Celtic on Saturday evening as they continue their quest to steal the
title and silence their critics.
Kick-off is at 20:15.
